    Guards and Nurse ACQUITTED!!

    Updated: 20 minutes ago
    PANAMA CITY, Fla. - Seven former boot camp guards and a nurse were acquitted Friday of manslaughter in the death of a 14-year-old boy who was hit and kicked by the drill instructors in a videotaped altercation.

    The all-white jury took about 90 minutes to decide whether the guards were responsible for the death of Martin Lee Anderson, a black teen. The guards are white, black and Asian. In closing arguments Thursday, a prosecutor said that Anderson died because the guards and a nurse lacked good judgment and decided to use force against him rather than calling for medical help.

    Tensions rise after boot camp acquittals

    Seven former juvenile boot camp guards and a nurse had barely processed an all-white jury's decision to acquit them in a black teenager's death before federal authorities announced they would review the case.

    Thier primary argument....Child died as result of "sickle cell trait".
    Now I wonder..How this child survived for 14 years, this "healthy, foul-mouthed, out-of-control young man", who now DIES NOT as a result of BE~ing beat, kicked, punched and ammonia capsules stuffed up his nose while his mouth was covered. NO ...he died because of this "undiagnosed" sickle cell TRAIT...
